Heather Graham Demystifies Why She Always Plays Strippers

“The subject of sexuality is definitely fascinating to me. I think also men like to write these characters in scripts. So if a man can write the part of a lesbian prostitute who’s into porno, they’re writing it in! Like, I want to do a movie about the survivors of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire and how they were empowered through their tragedy.”

Heather Graham explains to PopEater why she always ends up playing strippers, porn stars, and hookers when she’d actually like to play meatier roles. Speaking of strippers, Heather also tells the site that she was disappointed Stu doesn’t end up with Jade in “The Hangover 2.” I second that emotion. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Alan From “The Hangover”

In “The Hangover” (both 1 and 2), Zach Galifianakis’ character Alan Garner is socially inept, moody, abrasive, and has a bad habit of drugging his best friends. He’s also, against all odds, totally endearing. Alan’s personal style is as questionable as his character–graphic tees, white jeans, man purses (“It’s a satchel!”), and impossibly large aviator sunglasses–but I have to admit I’m charmed by his outfits as well. Is it possible to put together a flattering, stylish ensemble inspired by a such a walking faux pas? Challenge accepted… Keep reading »

Ken Jeong Says Mr. Chow Was Inspired By His Wife’s Battle With Breast Cancer

“There’s a little bit of Joe Pesci in ‘Goodfellas,’ a little bit of Heath Ledger’s Joker in ‘The Dark Knight,’ and everything else is just kind of in my head. Mr. Chow’s voice is a little Vietnamese [like his in-laws], a little Korean, and a lot of mayhem … My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago and I’m happy to say she’s cancer-free. She was going through chemotherapy when I was offered the job for ‘The Hangover’ and I almost turned it down. Tran, my wife, insisted that I do it … I think the reason I played Chow so aggressively and over-the-top in the first movie was, for me, a catharsis. If I had not done that, I would have had a nervous breakdown in real life. Even if ‘The Hangover’ wasn’t a success, it’s the best project I’ve ever been a part of because it got me through the worst period of my life. It saved me.”

—Ken Jeong, who happened to be a full-fledged doctor before getting bit by the acting bug, talks about his iconic role in “The Hangover,” Mr. Chow, and how his wife’s battle with breast cancer inspired his performance. Jeong also shares that, for “The Hangover 2,” which opens this weekend, Tran traveled with him to Thailand. “I was just so happy that Tran was there … I felt like an Asian Rick James.” Amazing. Love him. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Mike Tyson’s Tattoo Artist Suing Over The Face Tatt In “The Hangover 2″

The Hangover 2” opens this weekend, and apparently there is someone besides Mel Gibson who will not be eagerly waiting in line with a bucket of popcorn to get a good seat. In the movie, Ed Helms wakes up in a bathtub and discovers that he has a poorly done tribal tattoo on his face. The joke, of course, is that Mike Tyson—who makes a cameo in the original movie and its sequel—has a much better version of the same tattoo. However, Tyson’s tattoo artist, S. Victor Whitmill, is not amused. In fact, he is suing Warner Brothers for copyright infringement. Keep reading »

“The Hangover Part II” Looks Like The Same Movie All Over Again. Cool!

Confession: I only saw “The Hangover” last night, after a friend insisted it was “unAmerican” that I’d never seen it. So that makes it that much sweeter that the preview for “The Hangover: Part II” appeared this morning. It essentially looks like the same movie—only with a monkey rather than a tiger and a face tattoo instead of a missing tooth—but the first one was so fun that I’ll take it. Also, this one takes place in Thailand and doesn’t have a cameo from Mel Gibson. So, phew. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Bill Clinton Turns Down “30 Rock” Cameo, But Says Yes To “The Hangover 2″

Okay, so I’m confused. “30 Rock” is about to film its 100th episode, and to mark the occasion Tina Fey extended an invitation to Bill Clinton to be a guest star on the show. Why? Most people seem to think that she wanted him to match wits with Alec Baldwin’s character, Jack Donaghy, who is super conservative. The whole thing could have been awesome and totally hilarious. Bill could even have played a few bars on the saxophone for good measure! But, his staff turned down the offer. “The request was made and immediately denied without asking him,” a Clinton rep said. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Mel Gibson Versus Zach Galifianakis: Looks Like Zach Won

Earlier this week, we told you that Mel Gibson‘s camp had come up with a kind of brilliant plan to get the despicable actor back into the public’s good graces: a cameo in “The Hangover 2.” Mel was set to play a tattoo artist in the flick, but the appearance has now been nixed. The movie’s director, Todd Phillips, explains, “I thought Mel would have been great in the movie… But I realize filmmaking is a collaborative effort, and this decision ultimately did not have the full support of my entire cast and crew.”

So who in the cast objected? Keep reading »
